No need to get upset Green :) I give a crap, and I have already taken the LSAT. I just e-mailed the link to a friend in DC who might want to make $50. I wish I was down there, I'd go...

They posted the info on the LSAT web site about two weeks ago, we have already posted signs all over our school for students who are intrested.  ( My school is in driving distance from DC)

I know that bar exams including writing sections and some think it should be added to LSAT, but how would you objectively grade writing?

Maybe it'll be like the SAT writing section? That had grammar questions and find-the-error type stuff, and also an essay I think--but it was a mix of subjective and objective.
